Hi Ali,

Thanks for your response. I have requested License file and issue was not there but i saw original Dynamic file is of 4 pages and after converting it changed to 2 pages i have attached both sample file here;below is the code snippet, we are about to purchase the license once this POC is success , please help us to evaluate and making decision to go further for purchase. if it doesn’t work we are afraid to go ahead.

// Initialize license object
Aspose.Pdf.License license = new Aspose.Pdf.License();
// Set license
license.SetLicense(licensefile);
Console.WriteLine(“License set successfully.”);
// Load dynamic XFA form
Document document = new Document(dataDir + “OriginalDynamicFile.pdf”);

            // Set the form fields type as standard AcroForm
            //document.Form.SignDependentElementsRenderingModeWhenConverted = Aspose.Pdf.Forms.Form.SignDependentElementsRenderingModes.RenderFormAsSigned;
            //for (int pagecount = 1; pagecount <= document.Pages.Count; pagecount++)
            //{
                document.Form.Type = Aspose.Pdf.Forms.FormType.Standard;
                //  document.Flatten();

                dataDirDESC = dataDirDESC + "6017675 - Dynamic form-Converted.pdf";
                // Save the resultant PDF
